Selma 2015, by the numbers

On Saturday, the president led a re-enactment of the march o Selma for the Voting Rights Act of 1965, which create the Congressional Black Caucus -- and also enabled Republicans to control the House of Representatives by concentrating white voters in black districts.

So what is Selma like today? It is home to 20,000 people, 80% of whom are black, according to the Census Bureau.

Sperling's Best Places reports Selma's unemployment rate is 12% (twice the national average). the median family income is 42% of the national average ($22,076 vs. $53,046) and 60% of the people live in a family with an annual income of less than $30,000.

But it made a nice photo op for the Obamas and the Bushes.



  1. Selma is also one of the worst places to work in Alabama. It's crime rate is well above both the Alabama and national averages. Neighborhood scout gives it a 1, meaning that it is safer than 1% of other US cities. There's 130 crimes per square mile. The national average is 37.9

  2. Hey Surber nice pointless negativity and shameless racism. Wait , oh yeah you got fired for that Some fools never learn I guess.

  3. LOL -- I point out the fraud that the Gazette posted as a news story last night and suddenly an anonymous person decides to try to attack me on every post. Wow, I tattooed your ass
